Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Childs and LB Nathan Williams were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Childs blew up both knees in training camp last year, so it comes as no surprise that he's starting slowly this time around. He may wind up on the Vikings' practice squad if he's not on the PUP or IR this season.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Childs (knees) has not been cleared to participate in team practices at this point and likely will not be for some time. He has been working out in the weight room and currently weighs 225 pounds. He has also been able to do some running and cutting.
Huddle Up: Childs, a 2012 4th-round pick, had his rookie season wiped out by, not 1 but 2 torn patellar tendons, and those looking for fantasy WR sleepers are best directed to look elsewhere right now.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Childs said there is no timetable for his return but is making progress in his recovery from two patellar tendon tears. He has been able to do some cutting, jumping and sprinting at this point but is not close to 100 percent yet. He said he will not rush back and is not sure if he will be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: The Vikings signed Greg Jennings and drafted Cordarrelle Patterson to take care of their immediate needs at wide receiver. Childs has a ways to go just to get back on the field; it would be optimistic to stash him even in unlimited long-term keeper leagues.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Childs said his rehab from two torn patellar tendons is going well but is not sure if he will be able to take part in offeseason workouts. "Everything's coming along good," Childs said. "I'll definitely be back. It's not even a question or whatever. It's just mainly me continuing doing what I'm doing out here, continue my rehab, continue to stay focused and just getting ready to go." Childs said it took him 18 months to feel normal after he torn one of his patellar tendon in 2010.
Huddle Up: It was my understanding that there would be no math, but if it took Childs 18 months to recover from one torn patellar tendon does that mean it will be three years before he's back from two? If he returns to the NFL at all it will be borderline miraculous, but he does drink from the same practice facility water jug as Adrian Peterson... so we're sayin' there's a chance.
